My First Outdoor Show
This was a big change for me as I had never seen the dead outside! All of my other NY shows were FE and Capitol Theater in Port Chester. Also, I was with a big group of people and that combined with this early stadium setting I recall made it hard to really focus on the music. But being able to stream it now I see that they played really well and it was a clearly a great show and the sound here is super. Things I remember was that it was Jerry BD of course, that The Band played and there was the rumor flying around that Dylan was there. I also remember fireworks were being shot from around the ramparts of the stadium - which was an ancient structure from the Iron Age. What else? Oh, the Dead was always great to NY audiences - they were well loved in NY and the love was clearly reciprocal. I always felt like gee if this is how they play in NY it was off the hinges in CA. Now, I have come to learn that the NY shows were simply super.

spacy end of night whoosh!
I concur, as written below- end of night super chill spacy darkstar to el paso. Sooooooo trippy! "the dark Star>El Paso jam is one that we would often play in the hotel after shows as everyone was getting ready for bed and trying to crash out. This was not because it is a boring jam, it is definitely not that, but the jam afetr the verse and into El PAso is long and very spacey and is a perfect jam to get your mind to stop racing and relax, it worked every time!!

My first Dead show...
... two months after graduating from Bergen Catholic High School. Seems like half my friends from New Milford were there. I had been turned onto the Dead by Europe 72 -- listening to that record over and over, looking through the book that came with it, I knew I'd found my tribe. Trippin' balls at this show confirmed it. Five months later I moved to California by Amtrack, singing "Promised Land" all the way. I now live in a little Santa Cruz Mountains community called Lompico, where Jerry and his family had a cabin, and where he lost his finger. Wish I was in Chicago this weekend.

Keith is the Man
In honor of his recent birthday, I recommend this above average AUD. He's toward the front of this mix and on top of his game--a mighty fine combo.

Dark Star crashes...
This is one of my favorite Dark Stars -- especially the ten minute jam before the verse, with lots of creative, unique group improv. I read somewhere and agree that this version seems to incorporate a bit of the Allmans' approach to jamming (this show was 4 days after they shared a bill at Watkins Glen).
The transition into El Paso is well-done. Eyes and Morning Dew are long and very good, but to me a bit loose and not on the level of the Dark Star.

Great Dark Star for Jerry's B'day
this has always been one of my favorite shows. I have had parts of it since the late 70's. For a long time, I only had the Dark Star>El Paso>Eyes >Dew, and am so happy to be able to get the whole show now. To me this is one of the great Dark Stars of all time. The jam after the verse is spacy and sweet, and the transition into El Paso is very smooth, and actually works very well. The Eyes is one of those classic 20 minute '73 versions with the Stronger than Dirt jam at the end, and the Dew is one of the slowest I have heard. The rest of the show really rocks as well. The sound is very good as well, especially considering that this is 1973.
As an aside, the dark Star>El Paso jam is one that we would often play in the hotel after shows as everyone was getting ready for bed and trying to crash out. This was not because it is a boring jam, it is definitely not that, but the jam afetr the verse and into El PAso is long and very spacey and is a perfect jam to get your mind to stop racing and relax, it worked every time!!
Get this show!!
